2011 Track Bike cutting out when leaned

Hey guys, I have a 2011 dedicated S1kRR track bike. I was recently at Palmer Motorsports Park (for the first time) and noticed that when my bike was leaned over it would start cutting out and sputtering (more noticeable on downhill lefts and rights). Once vertical the problems went away. I ride with the tank full or nearly full so it should't be a pick up problem. I ran in Slick mode and in Race mode (TC on and off) with no noticeable difference in behavior. I was running VP T4 race fuel early in the day then straight 93 octane pump later on. Again no noticeable difference. I will mention the T4 has been in the bike for a few weeks. However, VP says this isn't a problem like say MR12. The bike has never done this before. How common are failed lean angle sensors? Any suggestions on where to start?
